busy days

Lately, I've been spending a lot of time getting ready for our big move (next week!!!). You know: packing, organizing, cleaning, setting up utilities, etc.

My cousin Rachel came to watch the kids for a couple of days last week, and it was heavenly. Besides being one of my favorite people and a ton of fun, Rachel LOVES my kids. Also, I was able to get a TON of work done without feeling guilty for neglecting the little ones.

Today Brent's mom (Gram) watched the two boys while I took Mercedes to her last Utah Gymnastics class. Usually I just drop her off because sitting quietly does not happen for those two - EVER. It was so much fun to see the skills she has acquired on the beam, floor and bars. I noticed that she kept looking at me; checking to see if I was paying attention. Each time I would give her a big grin and she'd smile back.

Gram with Aunt Suzannie, Sept 2009. Aren't they a gorgeous pair?

This afternoon I was at our local gas station and overheard something FANTASTIC:

Behind the counter were a young woman and a young man. They were each aged somewhere between 16 and 22. The young woman is beautiful: tall, long and silky hair, huge smile. I heard her say to her co-worker who'd made a comment about looking cool: "It's more important to me to be nice than it is to be cool."

Now that's a girl who's got it all together and knows who she is.

Less than two weeks until our family is reunited!!!!!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!
